    4 Tbsp. butter
    1 onion, diced
    6 celery stalks, diced
    1 bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1/4" julienne
    1 Tbsp. tomato paste
    1 (1-lb 12-oz.) can diced or chunked tomatoes
    1 (14.5-oz.) can diced or chunked tomatoes
    1 1/2 cups half and half
    3/4 cup light-packed fresh basil
    1 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
    1 1/2 tsp. sugar


In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onions, celery and red pepper and saute about 10 minutes, until vegetables are soft. Stir in tomato paste and two cans of tomatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, partially cover, and simmer 20 minutes.

Off heat, stir in remaining ingredients. Let col slightly, then process in batches in a food processor fitted with a metal blade (or use a soup blender and blend in the pan). You do not want a smooth pure, but a texture that has some small chunks.

Can be made several hours ahead or the day before serving.

Serving Size: makes 8 1-cup servings
